Aguilar vs Esquibel rebooked for Fight Night Boise after ‘chapped lips’

Yesterday we posted the detailed, yet bizarre, story of why Jessica Aguilar vs Jodie Esquibel was cancelled from the Utica card. It turned out that despite being cleared by doctors for chapped lips, the New York commission wouldn’t allow Aguilar to fight. Today, Aguilar posted the news that she and Esquibel are set to fight once again.

This time, the two ladies will square off on the Boise Fight Night card on July 14. Aguilar gave the good news via her Instagram.

“Great news!! My fight has been rebooked for July 14th! I’m so happy and extremely thankful. I’d like to send out a HUGE GRACIAS to my team (my ♥️, coaches, sparring partner, friends and family), for all their help, support, love and for riding with me on this rollercoaster. THANK YOU to my management @firstroundmgmt for handling business as always, to Jodi for agreeing to rebook this fight, to everyone who’s sent love my way, to all the media for helping me share my story and last, but not least THANKS SO MUCH @mickmaynard2 & @ufc for making this a quick turn around.”
